Deposit and Price Information
The normal deposit for this cruise is $250.00 per person to confirm your cabin number and location. Low deposit promotions get added by Carnival often, and we can contact you if you'd like to be notified that's going on to confirm your cabin number earlier.
If you would like to do a low deposit, we can book under the group rate and the cabin number would not be assigned until the full deposit is paid, but you can space out your payments.
Once the full deposit is paid in the amount of $250.00 we will be able to obtain your cabin numbers. Getting this paid early will allow me to get cabins close together or in the best locations. Once your cabin is booked the full deposit is non refundable, so if you are not sure you can go wait to book the cabin, or purchase travel insurance. There are no name changes once cabin is booked with out paying a change fee.
A non-refundable deposit of $50.00 per person will secure your space in the group. This only secures your cabin type (inside, Oceanview, or balcony), but not location or cabin number.
We need this 1st payment by May 1st, 2019 by 4 PM Central Time.
A 2nd deposit in the amount of $200.00 is due August 1st, 2019 - at this time we will be able to secure your cabin unless a low deposit promotion has been added by the cruise line and booked for you.
If you pay the 250.00 per person early, your cabin will be assigned early! :) IF there is a low deposit promotion in when you book, these 2nd payment terms would not apply.
The balance is due by October 29, 2019 (NO extensions on this date are available)
You can make payments as often as you would like!
We can set up automatic payments for you!
